Very Poor in answering call lights. New Admininistration lies, he may seem nice but it is all an act. Don't trust them. Family members sit on toilet or call for help...it's pitiful. I will never put my loved one in this facility. They only care about profit. When someone passes away they try to fill the bed as soon as possible to keep their profits up. Check it out for yourself before you ever decide to put a loved one in the facility. Don't tell them your coming. Come and sign in as a visitor. Look around. Don't ask for a manager..they will tell you what you want to hear. I am speaking from four years of experience working there a manager. I am sad as to how the residents suffer. It pains me that I tried my best to make their lives better but profit overcomes safety and love for the residents.
